shop at your local farmers' market!

The farmers' markets in Dorchester and Mattapan are all up and running, please check out this link to DEHC's website for days, times and locations, or go here to print out the DEHC Summer newsletter, which has the market schedule*. All markets accept SNAP benefits (food stamps) with an additional 50% off through the Bounty Bucks program - SNAP can also be used to buy food-producing plants and seeds.
Local farmers' markets are open and selling fresh local grown produce (and other great items!) on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. You can probably walk or bike to one near you! DEHC is helping out at most of the markets during the season, weekly on Fridays at Ashmont/Peabody Square, stop by and say hi!

*Please note that the Grove Hall Farmers' Market opening has been delayed, check back on the website regularly for updated information.
